Palawan, an island province comprising one main island and thousands of smaller islets and outcrops, is located between Mindoro in the Philippines and Borneo in Malaysia.

It is an area of extraordinary natural beauty, its sloping white- sand beaches slipping down into still turquoise waters, and towering forested cliffs jutting dramatically into the ocean.

The main island is long and narrow, and surrounded by coral and limestone offshore reefs. With over 1,000 miles (1,600 km) of coastline here, you are bound to find your own little piece of paradise
